  • A fresh take on Oscar Wilde’s 'comic masterpiece' (Guardian), Michael Fentiman’s 'hilarious' adaptation of The Importance of Being Earnest breaths 'new and vital' life (WhatsOnStage) into 'one of the most immaculately crafted stage comedies of all time' (The Stage). 

    Olivier-Award winner Sophie Thompson 'triumphantly tackles' Lady Bracknell’s infamous 'Handbag' (Arts Desk), while Stella Gonet’s Miss Prism 'utterly convinces' alongside Jeremy Swift, who hits 'all the right notes' as Rev. Chasuble (WhatsOnStage).

    Fiona Button is 'bright' and 'engaging' as Cecily (Time Out), dovetailing perfectly with Pippa Nixon’s 'excellent' Gwendolyn (Broadway World); while Jacob Fortune-Lloyd is 'perfect' as Jack (The Times) opposite Fehinti Balogun’s 'glorious' and 'sexy as hell' Algernon (WhatsOnStage). 

    'Brilliantly funny' (Times) and 'charming' (Evening Standard) in equal measure, don’t miss the 'magnificent' (Sunday Times) final instalment of Classic Spring’s critically acclaimed Oscar Wilde Season.
